Second Chance inmates may be coming back - 2008-12-30
Four inmates from Eddy County currently undergoing drug rehabilitation treatment at the Second Chance center in Albuquerque will probably have to serve their time in jail if the facility is closed, Carlsbad Magistrate Judge Henry Castaneda said.
"The defendants from Eddy County will have to come back to jail here unless we can find another drug treatment center for them," Castaneda said.
On Saturday, the Associated Press reported that on Friday, Albuquerque Mayor Martin Chaves had terminated the city's lease with Second Chance. The article also stated that the rehabilitation center has until Jan. 31 to vacate the facility.
